Daily Drivers: Great Watches for Under 5,000 Euros

Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope

Junghans is a truly wonderful German brand from the Black Forrest with a long history. However, their collaboration with Swiss architect, painter, and designer Max Bill is what put them on the watchmaking map was many decades ago. Their tie to Max Bill remains strong and the Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope is the perfect result. It’s a clean, simple, and elegant watch that stays true to the original Max Bill design elements while adding a twist to it.

Features such as the minimalistic look, thin painted indexes, and large off-white dial all correspond to that. A 40-mm automatic chronograph (ETA-based) with a date display and subdials at 12 and six o’clock for a little over €1000 is a great deal. Junghans’ name also guarantees functional and thought-out timepieces – just look at the pushers. These little details make the Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope a remarkable watch, something anyone can wear proudly.

Enthusiast’s Corner: Rare or Exceptional Timepieces

Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921

Not all true watch aficionados welcomed the Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921 with open arms when it was released in 2009. Personally, I find it gorgeous and a nicely executed re-edition (or “homage,” if you will) to the original. This timepiece stands out of the crowd due to its unorthodox dial and crown position. Its look pays tribute to Vacheron Constantin’s early 20th century watches.

Now with an updated 40-mm case size, the Historiques American 1921 is equipped with the breathtaking Calibre 4400 AS, a manual winding, 21-jewel, in-house movement from Vacheron Constantin. It has a 65-hour power reserve and bears the illustrious Hallmark of Geneva. The case of the watch is, of course, precious metal: pink gold, yellow gold, or platinum. The Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921 is a stunning masterpiece of haute horlogerie.

Iconic Timepieces: Great Value for Your Money

Rolex GMT Master

Rolex GMT Master – Offer from Pasini Gioiellerie: SOLD

There are a good few iconic Rolex models out there. The Submariner first comes to mind, closely followed by the GMT-Master. The GMT-Master became an icon despite – or perhaps because of – Rolex’s bold choice of bezel colors. However, one thing is for sure: Since the Rolex GMT-Master was introduced, every watch with the so-called “Pepsi bezel” is viewed as something that drew inspiration from this Swiss watch behemoth. For many, the GMT-Master and the GMT-Master II are the perfect tool watches.

Originally designed for PanAm, who had commissioned Rolex to create a GMT watch for their pilots, the Rolex GMT-Master went a long way. If you fancy the Submariner design and feel but want to spice up the look a bit, why not try the GMT-Master? You will fall in love with it.
